Abstract

The principal components involved in the processes of transcription and translation in Archaea have been identified by a combination of biochemistry and genome sequencing. In many cases, these factors are closely related to previously characterized proteins from Eukarya and Bacteria. Elucidating the function of these proteins will shed considerable light on the evolution of gene regulatory processes.
